Gerd Grimsø and Marianne Nymo suggest we make a Husprosjekt where each week, each of us comes up with a group project to do together and present the results. The first week, Gerd tasked us to make something with 10 birch branches and a poem. Next week, Marianne will assign our task. The last week I will have to have come up with something. We share our projects with each other and discuss whether or not to present them at our artist talk in Kjerringøy on 7 november 2020 kl. 13. For now I share with you the project and poem I completed on a day I walked about 18 kilometers on accident. It was what I might have called a perfect day. We had reindeer and elk for dinner at Ane’s house.
Being is a held breath
and between these branches
are one-hundred-thousand breaths
toward the heaven
before the descent
back to the present.
